Australian Slang

Blimey, I mean… crikey - he had a prang with a stinger, it chucked a spaz and he carked it but seriously mate, even though some people thought he was a bit of a drongo, he really was the bee’s knees when it came to conservation, telling yarns and keeping the Aussie lingo alive.

Maaaatttttttttte! :: grudknows

In Australia we’ve [almost] eliminated all words, that are commonly used to refer to one or more persons (including names), with the term “mate” (we still traditional words for expressive phrases such as, “WHO the &*@# are you?!” and such) - which, I’m sure to you foreigners sounds like the answer to any number of social-gaffs but in reality the effective use of the word ‘mate’ requires you to master a set of unwritten and complex rules relating to how the word is sounded (tone and ‘length’ of word (ie. ‘mate’, ‘maaate’, ‘maaattttteeee’)) - for example, you don’t want to infer that someone is a dickhead just because you’ve forgotten their name.
